Even though we’re on the verge of a coronavirus vaccine being released, the early months of 2021 still aren’t looking great for movie theaters getting back to normal operations. Some movies originally intended for release early next year have already shifted to later in the year, such as Ghostbusters: Afterlife and the Aretha Franklin biopic Respect, but studios are considering sending some releases from the first quarter of 2021 to streaming, such as the live-action/animated hybrid Tom and Jerry and the previously delayed Kingsman franchise prequel The King’s Man.

Following the recent decision by Warner Bros. Pictures to release Wonder Woman 1984 on HBO Max simultaneously with a theatrical release on Christmas Day, the floodgates are open for more studio blockbusters to take the streaming route. At least that might be the case for some of the big movies that Warner Bros. has waiting in the wings. Word on the streets of Hollywood is that Godzilla vs Kong may be the next major movie to land a streaming deal with HBO Max being the likely recipient. Read More »
Godzilla vs Kong was supposed to arrive in theaters this fall before being pushed back to May of 2021, so the merchandise for the monster movie mash-up is waiting in the wings to be released. In fact, a few listings of upcoming action figures of the two titular kaiju have made their way online, and an image from the back of the packaging has finally given us a proper Godzilla vs Kong first look photo.

Most summer blockbusters are PG-13, allowing for the potential audience to be as big as it possibly can be. Studios want families to bring their kids who are old enough, and want adults to have a good time too. So filmmakers often go for a rating that allows them to throw around a bit of profanity, maybe a single f-bomb, just the right amount of sex appeal, and plenty of action. When it comes to Godzilla vs Kong, the action comes in the form of giant monster battles, and not only does the official PG-13 rating for the movie confirm there will be plenty of that, but director Adam Wingard says the reason for the rating is “an understatement.” Read More »
Warner Bros. and Legendary’s MonsterVerse is setting up a clash of the titans later this year with Godzilla vs. Kong, the first major on-screen battle between the King of the Monsters and the King of the Jungle since the two essentially fought to a draw back in the 1960s. But in a twist that should surprise absolutely no one, it looks like the two title characters won’t be the only creatures involved in a brawl before the credits roll in this upcoming movie.

Legendary’s MonsterVerse hasn’t exactly been the smash hit producers were hoping for. The films released so far have received mixed-to-negative reviews, and the most recent entry – Godzilla: King of the Monsters – was a box office disappointment. With all this in mind, the future of the franchise seemed to be up in the air. Now, word has come down that the next film in the series, Godzilla vs. Kong, has been pushed back. Originally set for a March 2020 premiere, the Godzilla vs. Kong release date has moved to November 2020.

After years of fans demanding that a sequel to Space Jam be made with LeBron James (in a continued effort to compare him to Michael Jordan, the true greatest NBA player of all-time), Warner Bros. Pictures has finally set a summer 2021 release date for the live-action and animation hybrid.
But at the same time, the studio isn’t too confident that two of cinema’s most revered movie monsters going head-to-head in will be enough to contend with Vin Diesel and the crew of Fast and Furious 9. Godzilla vs Kong has been bumped up a couple months to avoid clashing with Universal’s hit international blockbuster franchise. Read More »
